To the delight of militant union thugs, race-obsessed lily white limousine liberals, and earnest, but silly, juveniles trying to masquerade as serious people, Vice President Joe Biden took it to those evil right wingers who are trying to stop Barack Hussein Obama from completing his “remaking” of America. As long as a few people still have full-time private sector jobs, we know his work is not done.
The aforementioned 15-20% who share the One’s ideology were thrilled by all of Joe’s snarky, condescending boffo performance, but based on some polls and anecdotal evidence, for many voters, it laid a huge egg. That fact captures the box that Barack Obama is in, and will face during next week’s debate. As previously noted in this post, what the left wing base has to confront is that the policies they find totally awesome, most of the country considers repellant. That’s why he can’t tell people what he really wants to do.
No exchange from last week’s Vice Presidential debate highlights his problem more than the one on taxes, which featured Joe’s “now you’re Jack Kennedy?” remark. Liberals squealed with delight, and recalled Lloyd Bentson’s put down of Dan Quayle in the 1988 VP debate. After Joe delivered this alleged zinger, Paul Ryan, clearly aware that the Obama campaign, and in this case, I mean Martha Radditz,was salivating at the prospect of accusing him of being disrespectful, just smiled. When Barack Obama faces Mitt Romney next Tuesday, the One won’t be permitted to hurl snide one-liners without having to deal with underlying substance. Mitt will be able to turn to our Sham WOW (Walks On Water) and reply “This isn’t about me or President Kennedy. It’s about the fact that we have the worst recovery since World War II. Millions of Americans can’t find full- time work. It has been done before. We have increased revenue after reducing tax rates, and furthermore, whether it’s been done before or not, is beside the point. In 2008, you admitted that even if lowering tax rates would increase revenue to the federal treasury, you would oppose that policy. So even if if we could bring in more revenue to not only deal with our massive debt and be able to help people in our own country without going hat in hand to the Chinese, you would be against it because of your extremist ideology.” Substance will carry the day, and, like all Leftists, B. Hussein is shooting blanks on that score.
If Barack Obama wins re-election, he will almost certainly be able to appoint at least one new Justice to the U.S. Supreme Court. That new Justice will be a proponent of theory of the “Living Constitution,” otherwise known as allowing liberals to impose an agenda that they would have zero chance of enacting through the legislative process. Our guest, Adam Freedman, one of America’s leading commentators on law and author of the new book, The Naked Constitution:What the Founders Said and Why It Still Matters, will join us to discuss how the theory of the “Living Constitution” endangers our individual freedoms, and what we can do about it.
